Greenbank estate description

**Winner of ABC TV Sweet Retreats on LiveWell Network! (June 8 2014)

Whidbey Island's finest vacation rental property, this spacious 4 bedroom/3 bath vacation home with two adjacent one bedroom cabins is sited on 155' of 'sugar sand' no-bank waterfront facing west. Build castles on the beautiful sandy beach. Cast for salmon from the beach. Cook an outdoor feast in the beachfront barbecue pit and celebrate the sunset with your friends at the covered picnic table, right on the beach. An easy stroll to the south are the towering firs and old growth hiking trails of South Whidbey State Park. There are many beautiful vacation homes on Whidbey Island; we can uniquely offer a walk-out sandy beach with sunsets, views of the complete Olympic mountain range, spacious grounds with large lawn and gardens, a stunning and private wooded setting.

A brand new kitchen caps a two year major remodel, bringing interiors to world class luxury standards. The interiors complement the gorgeous views from every window. Each of the 6 bedrooms have astounding water views.


Offers world class luxury and architecture: The Beachfront House and its two adjacent cabins provide over 4200 square feet of luxury space, with over 1200 more in exterior living space. A major remodel by Seattle architect Bruce Stock and Associates was completed in 2010 with interior styling by designer Lisa Wise . Amazing beach, water, and mountain views are framed from every room. A huge open plan kitchen offers granite countertops, teak trestle dining set seating 10-12, and every appliance and utensil we could think of. Our two largest bedrooms each include a king bed. A third contains a queen bed and twin bunk beds. A fourth contains a twin with trundle bed and opens directly into Bedroom three, great for a family arrangement. You’ll find oak and cork floors, antique Persian carpets, cedar clad cathedral ceilings, 3 cozy gas fireplaces, entertainment size deck with outdoor speakers, and an cozy atrium room. The cute adjacent cabins have also been recently updated as well.

Six comfortable bedrooms with high end linens: Each of the two adjacent one bedroom cabins are furnished exquisitely, with fine linens and cozy bedding, including a queen Westin Heavenly Bed in the Beach Cabin. Each cabin has its own bathroom, as well as satellite TV service, phone/intercom, and of course a coffee-maker. A lighted concrete path and phone intercom system connects the three structures, allowing both privacy and togetherness at your option. All bedrooms have 300-600 thread count linens, down comforters, and designer furnishings.

Great amenities for business retreats or families: Property amenities include a Hotspring hot tub with Ozonator, HDTV upstairs with DVD and Satellite service, 46' widescreen HDTV downstairs with XBox Kinect system, Xbox games, and DVD, multi-room stereo with huge CD collection, stainless steel BBQ, teak outdoor furniture, game table, fully stocked gourmet kitchen brand new in Feb 2010 with all new appliances, double laundry, and a wide selection of games and books.

                      Our property is sited on the South End of Whidbey Island, just north of Bush Point on Whidbey's 'Gold Coast'. There are only a couple of waterfront homes in our area. Most of the shoreline for a mile either direction is in its natural state. Whidbey Island’s west side real estate is always most expensive; with coveted Olympic Mountain, Puget Sound and shipping lane views, sunsets, and sandy beaches. Our particular location on the west side around the point from the beautiful but closely developed Mutiny Bay area is even better. Recent upgrades have made Whidbey Beachfront House and Cabins the premier luxury vacation rental on Puget Sound- a romantic retreat for 2 couples, or bring the extended family- we sleep up to 14. Why be elbow to elbow with neighbors in a beach development when you can enjoy a true luxury retreat away from it all, yet just 90 minutes from Seattle?

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About: Nancy and Al are both native Washingtonians who have lived in Boston, San Diego, and Auckland, NZ, and who happily returned to Seattle in the early 90's. They live in West Seattle and have 3 children. Nancy is on the board of Washington Conservation Voters. She loves cycling, hiking, gardening, good architecture, playing piano, and watching her kids play sports- soccer and rowing.

                      Why Greenbank:
                      My husband and I looked for Whidbey Island real estate for 2 years before purchasing this property on Whidbey's westside. It is truly the best beach location on Whidbey, and we bought it for the incredible views, sandy beach and SW facing aspect. Over the past 10 years, we have done extensive remodeling to bring the structures to luxury standards and enjoy sharing our 'Kennedy compound' (as friends have termed it!) with newer guests as well as families who return year after year. We donated most of our profits to environmental and women's health charities, with well over $60,000 donated over the past 5 years. We have used VRBO to introduce the property to new guests for over 8 years now.
